Royksopp have just had their contribution to the Rick Rubin-produced Star Wars dance album, Star Wars Headspace, premiere on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio.

Dubbed ‘Bounty Hunters’ the track is a menacing cut of thrashing electro that’s a world away from their more considered output – but we’re not complaining as this is easily the strongest song from the Rubin-produced album we’ve heard so far.

Amongst the razor-sharp synths and propulsive basslines the duo have liberally festooned their track with Star Wars samples – including tie fighter raws, blaster noises and vocal samples from Jabba’s Palace scenes – to give it a proper Star Wars vibe.
